This soup is a refreshing accompaniment to any Indian dish. Leave out the sour cream and it becomes a cooling Indian drink called, "Laasee." Note the "heat" factor can be controlled by the amount of cayenne pepper that is added, the recipe as posted is a medium "heat". Cooking time is minimum chilling time.

This was really good. I used some Chat Masala from the Indian store and used two carrots which I shredded with my food processor. I will try with the cucumber next time. The flavor was fantanstic and it was very refreshing. Thanks for sharing this one.
